  Censor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A censor was a high Magistrate (elected political officer) of the Roman Republic and Principate.
Because their original task was to guard to morality of public life, mainly by the standards of the pagan state religion (until the imperial conversion to Christianity), and punish transgressions, they were also known as castigator(e)s.
The censors were also in charge of the membership roll of the Senate, every five years adding new senators who had been elected to the requisite offices.

But the censor may fail to see that the library fulfills its obligations to the community it serves by providing materials presenting all points of view and that it is not the function of the library to screen materials according to arbitrary standards of acceptability.
Would-be censors may think that it is the role of the library to support certain values or causes-which are, of course, their values and their causes.

 Censor
After the constitutional reforms of the 360's, it was customary that the two censors served eighteen months; one of them had to be a patrician, the other a plebeian.
For example, the censors had to put out to tender projects that were to be financed by the state.
For example, the censor Marcus Porcius Cato once expelled a man from the Senate because he had kissed his wife in public, something that was regarded as undignified behavior, unfitting for a member of this august house.

 THE CENSOR
We state that your inner Censor is the Gestalt of all your repressions, diversions from natural self, and shielding devices that you use to avoid responsibility for behaviour.
Just as surely, when the alarms go off in a relationship, your censor is the one who will whisper "It's their fault" because it does not want damaging introversion to take over its creature (That's you, by the way).
When the Censor realises that by listening it gains more, and that the Ego is in fact better protected, it starts to accept this as a Survival Pattern, and gives up a little of its "control Space".

 The return of the censor
The military censor, which had seemed to be an annoyance that had passed from this world, has been resurrected and once again is making things difficult for the free press in Israel.
The censor's authority is derived from mandate-era regulations that allowed the authorities to shut down newspapers and impose draconian punishments on them.
It works by agreement: The media promises to send the censor pre-publication copies of articles, the censor does not use its legal authority to enforce the law through criminal proceedings, and differences are worked out through a special tribunal.

Though this was from a later post, it was my attempt to illustrate usage of the word censor in modern English, and I think that it proves my point well.

In its noun form, censor is defined as "a person authorized to examine books, films, or other material and to remove or suppress what is considered morally, politically, or otherwise objectionable".

In many ways, this is his most personal movie ever and in a courageous move, he takes on the powerful and suffocating power of the Indian Censor Board.
In a Rashomon-like editing style, Dev inter cuts the actual move with the movie within the movie, until one is the other and the result incomprehensible to all but the chosen few.
All in all, Censor is a return to form for the legendary Dev Anand - a hard-hitting film that is a must-watch for fans of the genre of Dev Anand films, and a masterpiece that packs off the yelping Kurosawas and Kubricks of the world back to film school with their tail between their legs!
